Marv Throneberry (dec. 1994) was the starting first baseman for the 1962 New York Mets. Originally a member of the Yankees, he was on the 1958 World Championship team. Following his career, Marvelous Marv became one of the original spokesmen for Miller Lite beer in the mid-1970s, poking fun at himself in a series of TV commercials. Throneberry's most famous line: "If I do for Lite what I did for baseball, I'm afraid their sales will go down." In another popular ad, after other celebrities are shown, Throneberry is shown at the end, saying: "I still don't know why they asked me to do this commercial.” He was lovable, and highly collected, as both Yankee and Mets collectors clamor for single-signed baseballs. Offered here is a Rawlings official National League (White) baseball signed with a rare inscription "Original Met 1962" by Marv Throneberry. The autograph is guaranteed authentic, and includes authentication from PSA/DNA.
Note: This item does not include an individually numbered TRISTAR Authentication hologram, only the PSA/DNA authentication.
